ORIGINCLEAR, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS-UNAUDITED

SEPTEMBER 30, 2019

 

1. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of OriginClear, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019.  For further information refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Going Concern

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.  The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. The Company’s revenue is not yet sufficient to cover its operating expenditures and the Company has negative cash flows from operations, which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, raising additional capital and increasing sales. Management believes the existing shareholders, prospective new investors, current and future sales will provide the additional cash needed to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due, and will allow the development of its core business operations. No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing, or cause substantial dilution for our stockholders, in case of equity financing.

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICES

 

This summary of significant accounting policies of the Company is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, which is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of OriginClear, Inc. and its wholly owned operating subsidiaries, Progressive Water Treatment, Inc., and OriginClear Technology Limited. All material intercompany transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation of these entities.

 

Loss per Share Calculations

Basic loss per share calculations are computed by dividing income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares available. Diluted earnings per share is computed similar to basic earnings per share except that the denominator is increased to include securities or other contracts to issue common stock that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive.

 

Nine months ended September 30, 2019

The Company has excluded 122,044 shares of common stock issuable pursuant to outstanding warrants, shares of common stock issuable pursuant to outstanding convertible debt of $3,638,893, and shares issuable upon conversion of convertible preferred stock for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, because their impact on the loss per share is anti-dilutive.

 

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

The Company has excluded 1,80582, stock options, 130,575 warrants, convertible debt of $3,494,546 and shares issuable upon conversion of convertible preferred stock for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, because their impact on the loss per share is anti-dilutive. The Company did include convertible debt of $549,308 in its diluted earnings per share, because their impact on the earnings per share is dilutive.

 

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include estimates used to review the Company’s impairments and estimations of long-lived assets, revenue recognition on percentage of completion type contracts, allowances for uncollectible accounts, warranty reserves, inventory valuation, debt beneficial conversion features, fair value investments, valuations of non-cash capital stock issuances and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions the Company believes to be reasonable in the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICES (Continued)

 

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company periodically issues stock options and warrants to employees and non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for services and for financing costs. The Company accounts for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to employees based on the authoritative guidance provided by the Financial Accounting Standards Board whereas the value of the award is measured on the date of grant and recognized over the vesting period. The Company accounts for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to non-employees in accordance with the authoritative guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board whereas the value of the stock compensation is based upon the measurement date as determined at either a) the date at which a performance commitment is reached, or b) at the date at which the necessary performance to earn the equity instruments is complete. Non-employee stock-based compensation charges generally are amortized over the vesting period on a straight-line basis. In certain circumstances where there are no future performance requirements by the non-employee, option grants are immediately vested and the total stock-based compensation charge is recorded in the period of the measurement date.

 

Revenue Recognition

We recognize revenue when services are performed, and at the time of shipment of products, provided that evidence of an arrangement exists, title and risk of loss have passed to the customer, fees are fixed or determinable, and collection of the related receivable is reasonably assured.

 

Revenues and related costs on construction contracts are recognized as the performance obligations for work are satisfied over time in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, revenue and associated profit, will be recognized as the customer obtains control of the goods and services promised in the contract (i.e., performance obligations). All un-allocable indirect costs and corporate general and administrative costs are charged to the periods as incurred. However, in the event a loss on a contract is foreseen, the Company will recognize the loss as it is determined.

 

Revisions in cost and profit estimates during the course of the contract are reflected in the accounting period in which the facts for the revisions become known. Provisions for estimated losses on uncompleted contracts are made in the period in which such losses are determined. Changes in job performance, job conditions, and estimated profitability, including those arising from contract penalty provisions, and final contract settlements, may result in revisions to costs and income, which are recognized in the period the revisions are determined.

 

Contract receivables are recorded on contracts for amounts currently due based upon progress billings, as well as retention, which are collectible upon completion of the contracts. Accounts payable to material suppliers and subcontractors are recorded for amounts currently due based upon work completed or materials received, as are retention due subcontractors, which are payable upon completion of the contract. General and administrative expenses are charged to operations as incurred and are not allocated to contract costs.

 

Contract Receivable

The Company bills its customers in accordance with contractual agreements. The agreements generally require billing to be on a progressive basis as work is completed. Credit is extended based on evaluation of clients’ financial condition and collateral is not required. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses that may arise if any customer is unable to make required payments. Management performs a quantitative and qualitative review of the receivables past due from customers on a monthly basis. The Company records an allowance against uncollectible items for each customer after all reasonable means of collection have been exhausted, and the potential for recovery is considered remote. The allowance for doubtful accounts were $0 as of September 30, 2019 and $6,996 as of December 31, 2018. The net contract receivable balance was $454,521 and $309,223 at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Fair Value of Financial Instruments, requires disclosure of the fair value information, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet, where it is practicable to estimate that value. As of September 30, 2019, the balances reported for cash, contract receivables, contract assets, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, contract liabilities, and accrued expenses, and derivative instruments approximate the fair value because of their short maturities.

 

We adopted ASC Topic 820 for financial instruments measured as fair value on a recurring basis. ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, established a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC Topic 820 established a three-tier fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurements). These tiers include:

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICES (Continued)

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments (Continued)

  Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;

 

  Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and
     
  Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable. 

 

The following table presents certain investments and liabilities of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities measured and recorded at fair value on the Company’s balance sheets on a recurring basis and their level within the fair value hierarchy as of September 30, 2019.

   Total   (Level 1)   (Level 2)   (Level 3) 
                 
Investment at fair value-securities  $14,000   $14,000   $     -   $     - 
                     
Total Assets measured at fair value  $14,000   $14,000   $-   $- 

 

    Total     (Level 1)     (Level 2)     (Level 3)  
                         
Derivative Liability   $ 13,615,889     $    -     $    -     $ 13,615,889  
                                 
Total liabilities measured at fair value   $ 13,615,889     $ -     $ -     $ 13,615,889  

 

The following is a reconciliation of the derivative liability for which level 3 inputs were used in determining the approximate fair value:

Balance as of January 1, 2019  $9,360,204 
Fair Value of derivative liabilities issued   - 
Loss on net change in derivative liability   4,255,685 
Balance as of September 30, 2019  $13,615,889 

 

Segment Reporting

The Company’s business currently operates in one segment based upon the Company’s organizational structure and the way in which the operations are managed and evaluated.

Marketable Securities

The Company adopted ASU 2016-01, “Financial Instruments – Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities.” ASU 2016-01 requires investments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investee) to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income. It requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purpose, and separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset. It eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost. The Company has evaluated the potential impact this standard may have on the condensed consolidated financial statements and determined that it had a significant impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company accounts for its investment in Water Technologies International, Inc. as available-for-sale securities, and the unrealized gain on the available-for-sale securities is recognized in net income. 

Licensing agreement

The Company analyzed the licensing agreement using ASU 606 to determine the timing of revenue recognition. The licensing of the intellectual property (IP) is distinct from the non-license goods or services and has significant standalone functionality that provides a benefit or value. The functionality will not change during the license period due to the licensor’s activities. Because the significant standalone functionality is delivered immediately, the revenue is generally recognized when the license is delivered. 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB established ASC Topic 842, Leases (Topic 842), by issuing ASU No. 2016-02, which requires lessees to recognize leases on-balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. Topic 842 was subsequently amended by ASU No. 2018-01, Land Easement Practical Expedient for Transition to Topic 842; ASU No. 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases; and ASU No. 2018-11, Targeted Improvements. The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to recognize a ROU asset and lease liability on the balance sheet. Leases will be classified as finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern and classification of expense recognition in the statement of operations. The Company adopted the new standard on January 1, 2019.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICES (Continued)

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements (Continued)

The new standard provides a number of optional practical expedients in transition. The Company has elected the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permit it not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs. The Company did not elect the use-of-hindsight or the practical expedient pertaining to land easements; the latter is not applicable to the Company.

 

The new standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2017, FASB issued accounting standards update ASU-2017-12, “D” (Topic 815) – “Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities”, to require an entity to present the earnings effect of the hedging instrument in the same statement line item in which the earnings effect of the hedged item is reported. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods with the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted in any interim period after issuance of the update. The Company has evaluated the impact of the adoption of ASU 2017-12 on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which had no material impact.

 

In June 2018, FASB issued accounting standards update ASU 2018-07, (Topic 505) – “Shared-Based Payment Arrangements with Nonemployees”, which simplifies the accounting for share-based payments granted to nonemployees for goods and services. Under the ASU, most of the guidance on such payments to nonemployees will be aligned with the requirements for share-based payments granted to employees. Under the ASU 2018-07, the measurement of equity-classified nonemployee share-based payments will be fixed on the grant date, as defined in ASC 718, and will use the term nonemployee vesting period, rather than requisite service period. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted if financial statements have not yet been issued. The Company adopted ASU 2018-07 on the January 1, 2019. The adoption of the new standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. 

 

Management reviewed currently issued pronouncements and does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Reclassification of Expenses

During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, certain expenses were reclassified in the financial statements, which had no material effect.

The number of make-whole shares being equal to the greater of ((i) zero and (ii) the quotient of (1) the difference of (x) the settlement value with respect to each sale of shares by the Investor after the delivery of the Settlement Shares, minus (y) the aggregate net consideration received by the Investor from the resale of all shares of common stock issued by the Company, divided by (2) the average trailing closing price for ten (10) trading days for the shares immediately preceding the date of delivery of the make-whole shares. During the nine months ended September 30,2019, the Company issued 281,788 shares of common stock upon conversion of principal in the amount of $28,185, plus accrued interest of $10,727, with a fair value loss on conversion of debt in the amount of $130,131. The Company recorded amortization of debt discount, which was recognized as interest expense in the amount of $51,605 during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. As of September 30, 2019, the remaining balance on the Apr & May 2018 Notes were $528,821.

 

The Company issued an unsecured convertible promissory notes (the “Nov 2018 Note”), in the sum amount of $75,000 on November 30, 2018. The Nov 2018 Note matures on November 30, 2019. The Nov 2018 Note bears interest at 10% per annum. The Nov 2018 Note may be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at a fixed conversion price of $0.05 per share or 50% of the average three (3) lowest trading prices twenty (20) trading days prior to conversion. The conversion feature of the Nov 2018 Note was considered a derivative in accordance with current accounting guidelines because of the reset conversion features of the Notes. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company issued 363,229 shares of common stock upon conversion of principal in the amount of $75,000, plus accrued of $4,439, and a settlement loss of $17,150, with a fair value loss on conversion of debt in the amount of $138,078.

4. CONVERTIBLE PROMISSORY NOTES (Continued)

 

We evaluated the financing transactions in accordance with ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and determined that the conversion feature of the convertible promissory notes was not afforded the exemption for conventional convertible instruments due to its variable conversion rate. The note has no explicit limit on the number of shares issuable so they did not meet the conditions set forth in current accounting standards for equity classification. The Company elected to recognize the note under paragraph 815-15-25-4, whereby, there would be a separation into a host contract and derivative instrument. The Company elected to initially and subsequently measure the note in its entirety at fair value, with changes in fair value recognized in earnings. The Company recorded a derivative liability representing the imputed interest associated with the embedded derivative. The derivative liability is adjusted periodically according to the stock price fluctuations.

 

The derivative liability recognized in the financial statements as of September 30, 2019 was $13,615,889.

 

5.DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

We evaluated the financing transactions in accordance with ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and determined that the conversion feature of the convertible promissory note was not afforded the exemption for conventional convertible instruments due to its variable conversion rate. The note has no explicit limit on the number of shares issuable so they did not meet the conditions set forth in current accounting standards for equity classification. The Company elected to recognize the note under paragraph 815-15-25-4, whereby, there would be a separation into a host contract and derivative instrument. The Company elected to initially and subsequently measure the note in its entirety at fair value, with changes in fair value recognized in earnings. The Company recorded a derivative liability representing the imputed interest associated with the embedded derivative. The derivative liability is adjusted periodically per the stock price fluctuations.

 

The convertible notes issued and described in Note 4 do not have fixed settlement provisions because their conversion prices are not fixed. The conversion feature has been characterized as derivative liabilities to be re-measured at the end of every reporting period with the change in value reported in the statement of operations.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company converted $460,135 in principal of convertible promissory notes, plus accrued interest of $100,557, and a default settlement loss in the amount of $77,924. As a result of the conversion of these notes and the change in fair value of the remaining notes, the Company recorded a loss on conversion of debt in the amount of $254,585 in the statement of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. At September 30, 2019, the fair value of the derivative liability was $13,615,889.

 

For purpose of determining the fair market value of the derivative liability for the embedded conversion, the Company used the Binomial lattice valuation model. The significant assumptions used in the Binomial lattice valuation model for the derivative are as follows:

 

      9/30/19  
Risk free interest rate     1.55% - 1.99 %
Stock volatility factor     129.0% - 355.0 %
Weighted average expected option life     1 months - 5 years  
Expected dividend yield     None

7. REVENUE FROM CONTRACTS WITH CUSTOMERS

 

Equipment Contracts

Revenues and related costs on equipment contracts are recognized as the performance obligations for work are satisfied over time in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, revenue and associated profit, will be recognized as the customer obtains control of the goods and services promised in the contract (i.e., performance obligations). All un-allocable indirect costs and corporate general and administrative costs are charged to the periods as incurred. However, in the event a loss on a contract is foreseen, the Company will recognize the loss as it is determined.

 

The following table represents a disaggregation of revenue by type of good or service from contracts with customers for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018:

 

   Nine Months Ended 
   September 30, 
   2019   2018

Licensing Fees   20,000    30,000 
   $2,696,433   $3,678,261 

 

Revenue recognition for other sales arrangements, such as sales for components, service and licensing fees will remain materially consistent.

 

Contract assets represents revenues recognized in excess of amounts billed on contracts in progress. Contract liabilities represents billings in excess of revenues recognized on contracts in progress. Assets and liabilities related to long-term contracts are included in current assets and current liabilities in the accompanying balance sheets, as they will be liquidated in the normal course of the contract completion.

Overview of Business

 

Our mission is to provide expertise and technology to help make clean water available for all. Specifically, we have the following initiatives:

 

1.We license our technology worldwide to treat heavily polluted waters and also to remove harmful micro-contaminants from drinking water, using minimal energy, chemicals, and materials.

 

2.We are building a network of customer-facing water brands to expand our global market presence and our technical expertise.

 

3.We develop new business models, such as our WaterChain™ concept to fund next-generation water recycling systems that can propel the world’s water supply forward into a cleaner future. This project is currently in a research and development phase.

 

Water is our most valuable resource, and the mission of OriginClear is to improve the quality of water and help return it to its original and clear condition.

 

OriginClear Group

 

Outsourcing is a fast-growing reality in water treatment. Tougher regulations, water scarcities and general outsourcing trends are driving industrial and agricultural water treatment users to delegate their water problem to service providers. As Global Water Intelligence pointed out in their report on October 30, 2015, “Water is often perceived as a secondary importance, with end-users increasingly wanting to focus solely on their own core business. This is driving a move away from internal water personnel towards external service experts to take control of water aspects.” External service experts are typically small–privately owned and locally operated. Consolidating these companies could lead to enormous economies of scale through sharing of best practices, technologies, and customers.

 

OriginClear is seeking to acquire companies to help industrial water users treat their water themselves, and often reuse it. We believe that assembling a group of water treatment companies is an opportunity for significant growth and increased Company value for the stockholders. 

  

The Company cautions that suitable acquisition candidates may not be identified and even if identified a definitive agreement may not be reached.

 

Progressive Water Treatment Inc.

 

Since October 1, 2015, Dallas-based Progressive Water Treatment Inc. (“PWT”) has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. PWT is a versatile designer, builder and service provider for a wide range of industrial water treatment applications.

 

With the PWT and future potential acquisitions, the creation of the Modular Water Systems division which is housed in PWT, and integrating its proprietary technology, OriginClear aims to offer a complementary, end-to-end offering to serve growing corporate demand for outsourced water treatment.

 

PWT’s Business

 

Since 1995, PWT has been designing and manufacturing a complete line of water treatment systems for municipal, industrial and pure water applications. PWT designs and manufactures a complete line of water treatment systems for municipal, industrial and pure water applications. Its uniqueness is its ability to gain an in-depth understanding of customer’s needs and then to design and build an integrated water treatment system using multiple technologies to provide a complete, not partial solution.

 

23

 

  

To help address customer needs, PWT utilizes a wide range of technologies, including chemical injection, media filters, membrane, ion exchange and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) technology in turnkey systems. The Company also offers a broad range of services including maintenance contracts, retrofits and replacement assistance. In addition, PWT rents equipment in contracts of varying duration. Customers are primarily served in the United States and Canada, with the company’s reach extending worldwide from Siberia to Argentina to the Middle East.

 

PWT is also a certified manufacturer of products using OriginClear’s proprietary Electro Water Separation™ and Advanced Oxidation (AOx™) technologies, building these on behalf of OriginClear licensees.

 

In the first quarter of 2019, the Company grew the manufacturer’s representative network of its operating units, Progressive Water Treatment (“PWT”) (www.progressivewater.com) and Modular Water Systems (“MWS”) (www.modularwater.com).

 

Modular Water Systems

 

On July 19, 2018, the Company announced the launch of its Modular Water Treatment division (“MWS”), offering a unique product line of prefabricated water transport and treatment systems. Daniel “Dan” Early P.E. (Professional Engineer) heads the division and along with the intellectual property which the Company licensed exclusively worldwide for three years, brought a following of prospective customers. On July 25, 2018, MWS received its first order, for a brewery wastewater treatment plant. Since that time, the division has achieved several installations, including one recently announced commissioning of its first closed-loop modular toilet waste recycling system for a commercial project in the mid-Atlantic. The customized wastewater treatment system helped the customer expand its automotive dealership into a rural area otherwise unfit for operation.

 

With PWT and other companies as fabricators and assemblers, MWS designs, manufactures and delivers prefabricated water transport (pump stations) and wastewater treatment plant (“WWTP”) products to customers and end-users that have to clean their own wastewater. It uses Structurally Reinforced Thermoplastic (“SRTP”) materials to focus on patented developing water and wastewater collection, conveyance, and treatment systems that have high performance and sustainability. Typical customers may include schools, small communities, institutional facilities, real estate developments, factories, and industrial parks. Dan Early has pioneered the use of heavy reinforced plastic materials to create modular “water-systems-in-a-box”. Not only is reinforced thermoplastic faster and cheaper to build, but it can have three times the lifespan, or more, compared with concrete-and-steel construction. Mr. Early’s inventions have led to the patented Wastewater System & Method and four other patents, which OriginClear has licensed exclusively for the world.

 

Dan Early has been designing and building prepackaged pump stations and municipal wastewater treatment systems for over five years, with a career background of more than two decades of water engineering experience.

 

MWS designs, manufactures and implements advanced prepackaged wastewater treatment, pump stations and custom systems with primary focus on decentralized opportunities away from the very competitive large municipal wastewater treatment plants. These decentralized opportunities include: rural communities, housing developments, industrial sites, schools and many more. 

 

As reported on February 5, 2019, and completed in April 2019, OriginClear has expanded its manufacturer’s representative network to serve both PWT and MWS for customer lead generation.

 

Technology Licensing Division

 

For its first eight years of operations, OriginClear focused on development and commercialization of its breakthrough Electro Water Separation™ technology. In 2015, the technology went into commercial phase, and the Company launched it as OriginClear Technologies, operating in parallel to the Group. The mission of OriginClear Technologies is to develop Electro Water Separation™ and achieve its full recognition as an international industry standard in treating our increasingly complex wastewater treatment challenges. For this purpose, OriginClear Technologies relies on an ongoing strong R&D and engineering activity for the development of its technology, while actively building its network of partners, licensees and joint venture partners for commercial development. A key element of this strategy is OriginClear (HK), OriginClear’s wholly-owned subsidiary in Hong Kong that manages Asia-Pacific market development, with a special focus on China sales and manufacturing. While OriginClear Technologies focuses on developing and monetizing the Company’s internally-developed intellectual property, best practices and trade secrets, it is expected to do the same for technologies which may come in the future with the Group’s acquisition of water treatment companies.

The Technology

 

OriginClear is the proprietary developer of EWS, the high-speed, primarily chemical-free technology to clean up large quantities of water. It removes oils, suspended solids, certain dissolved solids, and pathogens, in a continuous and energy-efficient process. The Company originally developed this technology to solve the challenge of removing microalgae from a highly dilute state. The EWS technology remains the most efficient non-chemical, continuous mechanism for the concentration of live algae cells from water.

 

The electro-chemical process was then extended, first to cleaning up oil and gas waste water and most recently, to industrial, agricultural and urban effluents. These water treatment applications are entirely electrochemical in nature and do not rely on algae for its cleaning capabilities, which is a separate application of the technology. EWS is designed to be an early step in removal of oils, solids and pathogens; reducing the work that more expensive, downstream processes such as Ultra Filtration or Reverse Osmosis must do, therefore enabling more cost-efficient and high-volume water cleanup overall.

 

In March of 2016, OriginClear announced that it had successfully developed and proved Advanced Oxidation for its breakthrough water cleanup system, EWS. University laboratory tests have shown that EWS with Advanced Oxidation (EWS:AOx™) can now extract dissolved contaminants, which are otherwise difficult to remove without chemicals such as chlorine. Overall, the system has shown a dramatic reduction in Total Organic Compounds which includes all forms of organic contamination, solids, miscible or dissolved, to meet new stringent global discharge requirements.

 

Today, we are capable of pairing the two technologies as EWS:AOx™, or separately, as the application requires. OriginClear believes that its technology is valuable to the industry because it has the potential to greatly extend the life of membranes and filters by effectively treating very dirty, oily water, while reducing chemical use significantly.

 

OriginClear also believes that its Advanced Oxidation technology will help neutralize harmful micro-contaminants, such as industrial solvents, which is difficult or impossible to achieve with other technologies.

 

Overall, the system has shown a dramatic reduction in Total Organic Compounds which includes all forms of organic contamination, solids, miscible or dissolved, to meet new stringent global discharge requirements.

 

Technology of the Operating Units

 

PWT Differentiation

 

PWT’s uniqueness lies in is its experience and expertise in building water treatment systems that are a complete solution for its customers using components and process technology from other equipment suppliers. This is a real benefit to its customers who too frequently are given partial solutions from other vendors who are trying to sell their own products. An example is a customer who only receives a pump and a filter cartridge, when they also need an ultrafiltration membrane system.

 

MWS Technology and Differentiation

 

As civil infrastructure ages and fails and as the costs for new and replacement infrastructure increase year over year, engineers and end-users are looking for new ways and methods of deploying water and wastewater systems that are less expensive (CAPEX) to deliver and much less expensive to own and operate (OPEX) with the mission intent of substantially increasing the replacement intervals (Life Cycle) currently experienced by conventional materials of construction and conventional product delivery models.

 

25

 

  

MWS leverages its total engineered solution capability with its emphasis on heavy plastic manufacturing to deliver product and infrastructure solutions that are radical departures from current steel and concrete systems. This represents a very attractive value proposition to consulting engineers and end-users where 98% of product and infrastructure solutions utilize concrete and steel materials for key system components. As such, MWS will focus on the rollout of its standardized heavy plastic pump station and smaller wastewater treatment systems product lines. The intent is to penetrate these two respective markets and capture a significant portion of the market opportunity over the next five years. Focus on these two product lines also represent the smallest investment in total in-house engineering resources which will substantially reduce expensive engineering labor costs. Both product lines utilize SRTP pipe to replace the custom designed and custom constructed concrete and steel systems used worldwide. The SRTP pipe is usually seen next to highways before it is buried for drainage.

 

SRTP includes both a profile wall design for self-standing (modulus) strength, and steel reinforced high-density polyethylene plastic. The use of SRTP allows: standardization of design, off-site manufacturing, up to a 100-year service life, faster on-site installation, corrosion resistance, reduced weight and lower costs. As a result, MWS’s pump stations and prepackaged waste water treatment processing (WWTP) systems cost less to manufacture and install, and have up to 3x or more the service life of conventional materials of construction.

 

MWS Intellectual Property

 

On June 25, 2018, Daniel Early granted the Company a worldwide, exclusive non-transferable license to intellectual property consisting of five issued US patents, and design software, CAD, marketing, design and specification documents (“Early IP”). We may contract with distribution channels (equipment distributors, oil service companies, water treatment companies, system integrators and engineering companies) of our choice to act on our behalf for the purpose of selling and integrating the Early IP.

 

The Early IP consists of combined protection on the materials and configurations of complete packaged water treatment systems, built into containers.

 

    Description   Patent Numbers   Date Patent Issued   Date Patent Expires
1   Wastewater System & Method   US 8,372,274 B2   Feb 12, 2013   Jul 16, 2031
        WO2011088197A2

With the rising need for local, point-of-use or point-of-discharge water treatment solutions, the Modular Water Systems licensed IP family is the core to a portable, integrated, transportable, plug-and-play system that, unlike other packaged solutions, can be manufactured in series, have a longer life and are more respectful of the environment.

 

WaterChain, Inc.

 

WaterChain, Inc. was incorporated in June, 2018. In December, 2018, the Board granted initial founder’s shares with the Company retaining 35 percent. On December 24, 2018, the Board agreed to issue Grants of Rights to Issue Future Tokens (GRAFTs), which have zero value, only on a complimentary basis to certain investors in OriginClear private placements, with only one such GRAFT being issued. WaterChain, Inc. is currently in research and development stage.

 

26

 

  

Expansion of the PWT and MWS Business-Lines

 

Beginning with its first installation, PWT built MWS components. We intend to expand this activity so that PWT can provide the production capability that MWS needs. This will include additional staffing particularly sales managers, engineers and project managers. In addition, we plan to expand the PWT facility with more engineering/project management space and another assembly building for MWS with fabrication tooling.

 

As reported on February 5, 2019, and completed in April 2019, OriginClear has expanded its manufacturer’s representative network to serve both PWT and MWS for customer lead generation.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) defines “critical accounting policies” as those that require application of management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods. Not all of the accounting policies require management to make difficult, subjective or complex judgments or estimates. However, the following policies could be deemed to be critical within the SEC definition.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue when services are performed, and at the time of shipment of products, provided that evidence of an arrangement exists, title and risk of loss have passed to the customer, fees are fixed or determinable, and collection of the related receivable is reasonably assured.

 

Revenues and related costs on construction contracts are recognized as the performance obligations for work are satisfied over time in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, revenue and associated profit, will be recognized as the customer obtains control of the goods and services promised in the contract (i.e., performance obligations). All un-allocable indirect costs and corporate general and administrative costs are charged to the periods as incurred. However, in the event a loss on a contract is foreseen, the Company will recognize the loss, as it is determined. The Contract Asset represents revenues recognized in excess of amounts billed on contracts in progress. The Contract Liability represents billings in excess of revenues recognized on contracts in progress. 

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include estimates used to review the Company’s goodwill, impairments and estimations of long-lived assets, revenue recognition on percentage of completion type contracts, allowances for uncollectible accounts, inventory valuation, valuations of non-cash capital stock issuances and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable in the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value of financial instruments requires disclosure of the fair value information, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet, where it is practicable to estimate that value. As of September 30, 2019, the amounts reported for cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate the fair value because of their short maturities.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management reviewed currently issued pronouncements during the three months ended September 30, 2019, and does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed unaudited financial statements.

 

Results of Operations for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2018.

 

Revenue and Cost of Sales

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we had revenue of $939,468 compared to $1,094,118 for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Cost of sales for the three months ended September 30, 2019, was $858,828 compared to $754,214 for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Revenue decreased primarily due to our subsidiary’s decrease in revenue, due to focusing on marketing of its products.

 

Gross profit was $80,640 and $339,904 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Selling and Marketing Expenses

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we had selling and marketing expenses of $409,825 compared to $470,926 for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in selling and marketing expenses was primarily due to a decrease in marketing expense.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses decreased by $176,813 to $595,181 for the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared to $771,994 for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to a decrease in professional fees, outside services and overall cost cutting measures.

 

Research and Development Cost

 

Research and development cost for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, was $29,334 and $49,880, respectively.  The decrease in research and development costs was primarily due to a decrease in salaries, contractor expense and other research and development costs.

 

Other Income and (Expenses)

 

Other income and (expenses) for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, were $(256,220) and $6,286,473, respectively. The decrease in other income (expenses) of $6,030,253 was the result of an increase in non-cash accounts associated with the fair value of the derivatives in the amount of $8,290,845, an increase in gain on conversion of debt in the amount of $1,069,783, an increase in commitment fees in the amount of $29,126, an increase in unrealized loss on investment securities in the amount of $4,600, an increase in other income in the amount of $1,983, a decrease in interest expense of $656,814, which includes non-cash amortization of debt discount of $337,572, and a decrease in gain on sale of asset of $20,000.

 

Net Income/(Loss)

 

Our net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $1,220,875, compared to net income of $5,318,888 for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The majority of the increase in net loss was due primarily to an increase in other income and (expenses) consisting of an increase in gain in non-cash accounts associated with derivatives along with an increase in gross profit, and other income and (expenses).  These estimates are based on multiple inputs, including the market price of our stock, interest rates, our stock price, volatility, variable conversion prices based on market prices defined in the respective agreements and probabilities of certain outcomes based on managements’ estimates. These inputs are subject to significant changes from period to period, therefore, the estimated fair value of the derivative liabilities will fluctuate from period to period, and the fluctuation may be material.

Cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, was $2,406,139 compared to $2,766,244 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. Revenue and cost of sales decreased primarily due to our subsidiary’s decrease in revenue, due to focusing on marketing of its products and the new sales line.

 

Gross profit was $290,294 and $912,017 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. 

 

Selling and Marketing Expenses

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we had selling and marketing expenses of $1,247,332 compared to $1,336,512 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in selling and marketing expenses was primarily due to a decrease in marketing and advertising expense.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses decreased by $377,363 to $1,766,496 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to $2,143,859, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to a decrease in professional fees, outside services and overall cost cutting measures.

 

Research and Development Cost

 

Research and development cost for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, was $80,094 and $167,944, respectively.  The decrease in research and development costs was primarily due to a decrease in salaries, contractor expense and other research and development costs. 

 

Other Income and (Expenses)

 

Other income and (expenses) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, were $(5,481,624) and $(2,542,572), respectively. The increase in other income (expenses) of $2,939,052 was primarily the result of an increase in non-cash accounts associated with the fair value of the derivatives in the amount of $4,215,011, a decrease in interest expense of $770,082, which includes non-cash amortization of debt discount of $337,572, a decrease in other income of $3,903, a decrease in unrealized loss on investment securities of $4,800, a decrease in loss on sale of asset in the amount of $406, with a decrease in commitment fees of $186,865, a decrease in loss on settlement of convertible notes in the amount of $308,587, a decrease in realized loss on investment in the amount of $20,000, and a decrease in loss on conversion of debt in the amount of $606,296.

 

Net Income/(Loss)

 

Our net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $8,318,040 compared to a net loss of $5,322,727 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The majority of the increase in net loss was due primarily to an increase in other expenses associated with the net change in derivative instruments estimated each period. These estimates are based on multiple inputs, including the market price of our stock, interest rates, our stock price, volatility, variable conversion prices based on market prices defined in the respective agreements and probabilities of certain outcomes based on managements’ estimates. These inputs are subject to significant changes from period to period, therefore, the estimated fair value of the derivative liabilities will fluctuate from period to period, and the fluctuation may be material.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations, and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. Significant factors in the management of liquidity are funds generated by operations, levels of accounts receivable and accounts payable and capital expenditures.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. The Company has not generated significant revenue, and has negative cash flows from operations, which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, raising additional capital. We raised additional capital from investors during the nine months ending September 30, 2019. Management believes the existing shareholders, prospective new investors and future sales will provide the additional cash needed to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due, and will allow the development of its core business operations. No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing, or cause substantial dilution for our stockholders, in case of equity financing.

 

At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, we had cash of $513,926 and $609,144, respectively, and a working capital deficit of $18,725,309 and $12,888,290, respectively.  The increase in working capital deficit was due primarily to an increase in non-cash derivative liabilities, convertible note receivable, deferred income, contract liabilities, accrued expenses, with a decrease in cash, contract assets, and accounts payable.

 

During the first nine months of 2019, we raised an aggregate of $2,592,490 from the sale of preferred stock in private placements. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon raising capital from financing transactions and future revenue.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $2,435,617 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and $2,011,034 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The increase in cash used in operating activities was primarily due to an increase in professional fees and marketing expense.

 

Net cash flows used in investing activities was $33,924 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, as compared to $195,357 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The net decrease in cash used in investing activities was due to investment in securities and in a convertible note receivable from prior period.

 

Net cash flows provided by financing activities was $2,374,323 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, as compared to $2,666,256 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in cash provided by financing activities was due to a decrease in loans payable and debt financing through convertible promissory notes. The convertible notes are convertible into shares of common stock, which have limitations on conversion. To date we have principally financed our operations through the sale of our common stock and the issuance of debt.

 

We do not have any material commitments for capital expenditures during the next twelve months. Although our proceeds from the issuance of convertible preferred stock together with revenue from operations are currently sufficient to fund our operating expenses, we will need to raise additional funds in the future so that we can expand our operations. Therefore, our future operations are dependent on our ability to secure additional financing. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. Such additional financing may not be available on acceptable terms, or at all. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow and may reduce our ability to continue to conduct business operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we may have to curtail our marketing and development plans and possibly cease our operations.

We have estimated our current average burn, and believe that we have assets to ensure that we can function without liquidation over the next twelve months, due to our cash on hand, growing revenue, and our ability to raise money from our investor base. Based on the aforesaid, we believe we have the ability to continue our operations for the foreseeable future and will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of operations.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues, and results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Pursuant to Rules 13a-15(b) and 15-d-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. The term “disclosure controls and procedures”, as defined under Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Based on that evaluation and due to the lack of segregation of duties due to small Company staff size, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of the end of the period covered by this report. To address this deficiency, we performed additional analysis and other post-closing procedures in an effort to ensure our consolidated financial statements included in this quarterly report have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Accordingly, management believes that the financial statements included in this report fairly present in all material respects our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15f of the Exchange Act) that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2019 that has materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

Limitations on Internal Controls

 

In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.
